A few years back my cat decided to get untrained. She started crapping behind the furniture. It was pretty strange. The solution was to move her to the shop where she has access to plenty of sawdust. So I get to share my shop with cat crap. Wonderful. This cat loves to ride on my shoulders. She will sit up there while I’m cutting 4X8’s or at the miter saw and just purr away. She will also stand right under your feet or try to climb your legs while at the saw! This picture is her s...
This is the second of the two islands. And yes they go into the same Kitchen. This island is again made from Mahogany lumber and UV plywood interiors. Again this Island has a bowfront cabinet on each end and the huge corbels on all 4 corners just like the first island. This section has a farm sink cabinet centered between 2 dishwashers. Farm sink Cabinet. This side has a bowfront cabinet ceneterd between 2 cabinets that are built opposite of each other. The small center s...
Here is the first of 2 large Islands that I built this week. This Island is made of mahoganey wood and is 62” wide X 116” long. It has 2 bow front cabinets on the ends. The cabinet interiors are UV plywood. This side has a prep sink, two drawers and a warming drawer, and a door that opens all the way to the floor for a trash can and a small stool. This side has two special pullouts on the left and right cabinet and has 2 huge pullouts in the center section. T...
Happy Mother’s Day to all the Lumberjock Mothers, Mother’s of Lumberjocks, and wives of Lumberjocks who are also Mothers. Your children and grandchildren are a blessing to all who encounter them…and in families where such natural work and hobby occurs as woodworking, you can bet there are wonderful creative moments taking place…because it takes great creativity to be a mother. Thank you for all the children and grandchildren…and thank you to all the mothers wh...
I’ve been trying to figure this out for a bit, and last weekend I cracked the case. Where do the logs and trees the tree trimmers cut down, and the stuff in the green waste recycling bins go? I tooled around Google Maps, searching for dumps and landfills, and found things like this that just didn’t seem to fit the bill. Finally I found this PDF file. It includes 20 pages, most with photos of everything that goes on, with figures on how much of each type of green waste is hauled in...
I wanted to let people know that after a long period off silence from my video podcast, I want to say that the shows may be coming back. Not sure yet, but we will have to see. I want to know what you would like to see from a show in the terms of projects, or use of tools/skills. Thanks. Any opinion is greatly appreciated.
Two weeks ago I reported that I was 65. Well, I didn’t have a picture of the 2×12 my wife gave me. It’s worth looking at. http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t66/Sawdust2_2007/DSCN5702sm.jpg Lee
This update’s for you Mary K. The woodworking is done and the hardware is in place. I used some “no mortise” hinges I got from our local Woodcraft store. The Woodcraft salesman talked me into them but I don’t think I will use them again. Although there’s no chopping out a mortise, they do require a fair amount of tweaking to get the up/down and left/right alignment just right. I would rather chop out mortises. My glass will be ready next week so now it is t...
just found this on craigslist for $125. seems to be in flawless condition. im surprised and happy to find it instead instead of the 1301 model i’ve been reading so much hate about! anyway, it’s a very welcome addition to my meager collection and will help dramatically I’m sure. i dont think i need to write a review about it, since so many abound and it’s not a new machine. but my initial impression of it is that it’s about as solid as it can be for its size. t...
My welder done me wrong and made several 6” BowlSaws undersize. They would be perfect for those who like to work miniatures. I’m giving them (4) to the first four woodturners who contact me. I’m saving one for myself for special projects. All I ask is that the requester give me an honest answer as to what his evaluation is of the tool. Contact me at Steuss@aol.com or check www.bowlsaw.com. I’m having fun with the tool and learn new things about wood every day. Dick
